  • The sentences talk about public administration.
  • The crux of para, i.e. Public administration is addressed well in D, hence D becomes introductory sentence
  • A talks about foundation of state. What could be it? ‘it’ here refers to public administration, which is mentioned in D. Hence, sequence so far D then A
  • Another ‘it’ is being talked in B where EU and EI are also mentioned. Public Administration is needed here as well. B follows A.
  • C has a tone of conclusion, thus next is C
  • E starts with ‘And’ and all the treaties of what? Of EU, referred earlier in A,B and C, hence comes in last

Question 7:

  • Introduction of Adela and Moore as Englishwomen is in E, hence becomes topic sentence.
  • A talks about their purpose of visit, hence follows E
  • A same time incident in India, a parallel story, connected by ‘at the same time’ is mentioned in D, where Aziz is also introduced.
  • B contains Aziz’s name but he is introduced in D, hence B comes after D. B also refers to British surgeon
  • C contains Englishman reference who is introduced as a British civil surgeon in B. Hence, C comes last.

Question 8:

  • Scout Finch along with his family members are introduced in statement F, where the town of Maycomb is also introduced for the first time. Hence F becomes introductory sentence.
  • Maycomb is later referred in B, thus it becomes mandatory pair with F, and thus follows it.
  • Atticus the father, is introduced further as a lawyer in statement C, who is doing great despite the Great depression (mentioned in B), thus it joins the flow of passage after B
  • Dill is introduced in A, who is later used in D using a connective, hence A and D form a flow, which would come after F, B and C.
  • The spooky house as mentioned earlier in D is further addressed in E.

Question 9:

  • Protagonist is introduced in statement C and hence becomes opening sentence.
  • D refers to ‘he’ who is this ‘he’? It is Nick Carraway they’re talking about, who is introduced in C, thus D follows C.
  • A talks about ‘a group’, this group is the group of the ‘new rich’ mentioned in statement D. Hence, D and A becomes mandatory pairs. A follows D.
  • B and E are talking about another character, but E is introducing him before B talks about him, hence E will come before B.

Question 10:

  • E refers to Golding by using ‘he’ also chronologically, E talks about his young age, hence E will follow D.

  • B talks about him graduating college. Which should come after C.
  • Finally, he goes on to join Royal Navy, which is being talked about in A. Hence, sequence becomes, DECBA.
